This past weekend the ISCorp Downer Classic, one of the key stops on the Tour of America’s Dairyland professional cycling tour, took cyclists on a one mile criterium course through Milwaukee’s East Side.   The event brought professional cyclists from around the world to compete, and when it was all over Cody O’Reilly, of Optum, had won the stage. For more race details, Tom Held, at The Active Pursuit, has a good write up of the race.

In addition to the featured evening race, the day long event held multiple races for a variety of skill levels throughout the day, including the popular kids’ race.  Of local interest Al Krueger, formerly of Hanson Dodge, racing for KS Energy Services-Team Wisconsin, grabbed 2nd place in the Master 35-45 category.

The day also featured a Belgian Beer Festival, great food from Cafe Hollander, corn on the cob from St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, and even a pop-up Alterra serving free coffee.

    Great pix here Dave. Being a bit nit-picky, but Al Krueger left Hanson Dodge and is pursuing some new opportunities. I talked with him briefly at the Shorewood Criterium and am looking forward to following his exploits on the bike and in business.

    @Tom Thanks for the update!

    My fault on that one. I need to do a better job of keeping up with Al. -Jeramey
